Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow is so wildly adaptable for a film that it gives me great hope it’s already on James Gunn’s list for the new (except his stuff) DC. It needs some depth which a good screenwriter can easily supply but it really is just ripe for a movie. I just didn’t love the … More Supergirl Woman of Tomorrow
Say what you will about Tom Hanks accent in Elvis my skin crawled every time he got near Austin Butler’s Elvis. He looked like he wanted to eat him and I was yelling, Get away from him!
I read The Princess and the Scoundrel, a book about Han and Leia’s marriage and honeymoon, and wow. I spent the whole book thinking, I can see why this marriage did not work. I’m surprised it lasted through the book to be honest. It’s kind of depressing. I couldn’t help wonder if that was part … More The Princess and the Scoundrel
Honestly I fully expected I was going to like The Menu. I put it on a list of Most Anticipated Films! And Anya Taylor- Joy… I pretty much enjoy everything she’s been in. I didn’t expect that I was going to LOVE The Menu and have it in my top 5 2022 films overall of … More The Menu
I only heard of Argentina 1985 due to its Best International Film nomination in this years Oscars. The whole reason I watched. And I’m very glad I did because it was excellent and well worth a watch.
The Banshees of Inisherin is a great totally character driven film. It takes you on a ride with these characters and I was with it from beginning to end. On the other hand by the end of the movie I knew if I ever hear the word “fecking” again I may just lose it!
Darkseid is… in love… Harley Quinn dropped a trailer for her surprise (at least too me) Valentine’s Day special and finally a Valentine’s Day event I can get behind!
Much like reading I’ve made it a goal to watch more international films. In 2022 I did a darned good job considering in the past I’ve usually only watched one or two subtitled films a year. Last year I did 11. Well 11 1/2 but I didn’t finish one so I’m not counting it and … More Films from Around the World (2022 List)
I actually really enjoyed Troll- it’s every disaster movie trope crammed into one movie. Which also happens to be a dark fairy tale. I mean sure there are parts that I cringed a bit. Parts that I actually teared up but still a totally fun watch. Pretty much any time someone tells me there’s a … More Troll: When Disaster Movie meets Fairy Tale
Excuse the title. I couldn’t think of anything less generic 🙂 But one of my goals last year (and moving forward) was to read more translated books- or just more books from other countries. Same with films but that’s another post. My goal is to hit every country in the world. Kind of like literary … More Reading Books from Around the World
